Sinopsis

Alex y Jonathan trabajan en el taller automotriz de Alfonso. Animados por cierta información que el primero ha conseguido, los tres deciden robar a una banda de contrabandistas de la cual hace parte Víctor. Lo que Jonathan y Alfonso no saben es que Alex y Víctor son hermanos y que la motivación de su compañero no es el dinero sino el afán de probarse tan capaz como el hermano mayor y abrir las puertas de un medio que le ha sido vedado por éste.
